Fast, Easy, Smothered Burrito Casserole, w/2 Pans and Plate

Postby SomewhereInND » Thu Dec 24, 2009 1:33 pm

Serves 2 to 8, depending on how much ingredients you use.

1. Pan 1 Boil a bag of spanish rice.
2. Layer 1:Dump onto plate.
3. Pan 1 Heat up some Cambells Cream of Chicken Soup, Fiesta Soup, or Nacho Soup.
4. Pan 2 (Frying Pan) Reheat ground chicken you made at home.
5. Mix in Taco Seasoning, Black Beans, Black Olives.
6. Layer 2:Place Large Burrito Tortilla Shell on top of plate of rice
7. Layer 3:Place Chick,Beans,Olives on top of that
8. Layer 4:Another Tortilla shell
9. Layer 5:Dump Soup on top.
10. Optionally heat at 350 for 25 minutes, or until contents are hot.
11. Smother with Shredded Cheese, Sour Cream, Chunky Salsa, Guacamole, Shredded Lettuce......use your imagination.

A preheated dutch oven would work great as the plate.

I have a plate the size of a large tortilla, with about a 1 1/2 inch side lip, works great.

For smaller quantities, you probably would not be able to fit full cans of soup,beans, olives, on a small plate.

For larger quanities, use baking pan with large side, instead of plate.

That sounds good, and I want to try it! Sorry if I sound like a moron (happens all the time!) but where do you get a bag of spanish rice? My recipe for that involves frying bacon and/or beef, making a casserole with rice and tomato, etc. Are you talking about something from the freezer section at the store? Or a bag that used to be in a box?

Uncle Bens, Rice a roni stuff, Fiesta Rice. Pour contents in pan add some water, and boil for 20 minutes.

Some are more complicated then others, so read instructions before buying.

Uncle ben also sells precooked rice in a bag, sold in the shelf section, but is pricey.

Success has a boil in the bag rice. Maybe they have a spanish rice too. Or some other side from the freezer side. :twisted:

Oh, if you make it in a square pan, to completely cover the layer of the pan, break some o f the burriotos in 1/4s, and put them in the corners of the pans.

Your basically making a lasagna, using burrito ingredients.

Left overs are even better, when you cut them out of the pan, make them 1 1/2 inch wide, 5"-6" long, thatway they heat up well in the microwave.

You can get "Spanish Rice" flavors from Rice A Roni or Uncle Ben's and some of the generic / store brand similar mixes.

Scratch-made from home beforehand is easy if you do it this way:

(Serves 4)

1 cup raw rice
2 cups water
3 tbsp Better Than Bouillion soup base, chicken flavor
1 can Mexican Recipe stewed tomatoes
1 tbsp olive oil OR 2 slices bacon
1/2 cup each diced onion and bell pepper
1 clove garlic, peeled and minced (or 1 tsp jarred minced garlic)
salt and pepper to taste

Heat oil (or fry bacon until crisp and fat has rendered out; set aside and crumble when you can handle it safely). In hot oil fry garlic, diced onion and bell pepper until onion is clear. Remove veggies and add water to pan. Bring to a boil, and stir in soup base. Add rice, bring back to a boil, reduce heat to a simmer, cover and cook 20 minutes.
Stir in Mexican Recipe tomatoes, garlic, onion and bell pepper, and bacon if you made it. Cover and set back over low heat 5-7 minutes or until liquid is absorbed. Serve warm.
